UK: Nintendo DS-Flasher jetzt illegal
A High Court has ruled that devices that allow gamers to play pirated video games are illegal in the UK.
The ruling specifically targets a range of popular devices which can be used to store and play copied games on the Nintedo DS handheld console.
The ruling says „game copiers“ are illegal to import, advertise and sell in the UK.
Auch die übliche Verteidigung der Nutzer wird erstaunlicherweise nicht akzeptiert:
„The mere fact that the device can be used for a non-infringing purpose is not a defence,“ read the ruling by Justice Floyd.
„The court affirmed that game copiers first circumvent Nintendo’s security systems before any non-infringing application can be played on Nintendo’s handheld products,“ it said in a statement.
